Response: Hello Susie, Unfortunately, money trees are very controversial and having one can actually result in you receiving less money than you might otherwise. From an etiquette perspective, the bride and groom shouldnt mention gifts in any way in the invitation. The way to make your wishes known is to not register for gifts then tell your families and the wedding party that you would prefer money. That way, they and you can spread the word verbally when asked. If guests are reminded of your circumstances, they should be willing to give money and not gifts. However, some guests, particularly older ones, do not like to give money and they will give a gift no matter what you want. The same goes for casual acquaintances, particularly those who may be friends of your parents.
